Neuroendocrinology at ENDO 2020

Meeting-Within-a-Meeting

Our popular Basic Science Pathways are back and have been enhanced to ensure your meeting experience focuses in on the topic area you need. These special “meeting within a meeting” tracks integrate focused discussions, poster sessions, and networking opportunities providing you with an ideal way to surround yourself with the latest research. Here are some of the Sessions already scheduled for the Neuroendocrinology Pathway.

Each track will offer electronic poster previews to help facilitate the viewing of the top scoring abstracts within each topic and receptions to be held at the end of each program. View session and reception information below, Oral Abstract and Poster Sessions information will be available closer to the meeting.

(S) Advances in Understanding the GnRH Pulse Generator (9:45 AM–11:15 AM)

Normal reproductive function requires pulsatile release of GnRH from hypothalamic neurons, however our understanding of the neuronal network and molecular mechanisms involved is still unclear. This session presents recent studies applying optogenetic, genetic and mathematical approaches to unpick the complex networks driving GnRH pulsatility and secretion. This symposium will also include a panel discussion on the clinical application and thus will be of interest to both basic scientists and clinicians with interests in disorders of gonadotrophin pulsatility.


(S) Courting the Melanocortin System (4:15 PM–5:45 PM)

Normal reproductive function requires pulsatile release of GnRH from hypothalamic neurons, however our understanding of the neuronal network and molecular mechanisms involved is still unclear. This session presents recent studies applying optogenetic, genetic and mathematical approaches to unpick the complex networks driving GnRH pulsatility and secretion. This symposium will also include a panel discussion on the clinical application and thus will be of interest to both basic scientists and clinicians with interests in disorders of gonadotrophin pulsatility.


(R) Networking Reception: Neuroendocrinology (5:45 PM–7:00 PM)

Network with your colleagues and leaders in the field.

(S) Hypothalamus: When Development Goes Wrong (4:00 PM–5:30 PM)

The hypothalamus processes inputs that regulate the many homeostatic mechanisms that ensure our survival. Understanding how its many cell types are specified during development can provide critical insights into how they control behaviors. This symposium will present recent data on the molecular pathways that control hypothalamic development.

(S) When to Stop Imaging in Pituitary Adenomas? (9:15 AM–10:45 AM)

Robust evidence-based protocols on the imaging of pituitary tumours are not available. This session will cover controversies on effective and safe imaging follow-up of patients with sporadic and familial pituitary adenomas (non-functioning pituitary adenomas operated or conservatively managed, Cushings and acromegaly) following various management options.


(S) Hunger Games: CNS in Endocrine Function and Metabolism (4:15 PM–5:45 PM)

This session will focus on the role of the central nervous system in feeding and metabolism.


Tuesday, March 31, 2020

(S) New Kids on the Block: Novel Neuropeptides in Reproductive Axis Regulation (11:45 AM–1:15 PM)

Two recently described peptides have been found implicated in neuroendocrine control. This session provides an update on our understanding of the regulation of these novel peptides and their receptors in the hypothalamus, potential roles in the ovary and the regulation of this axis via diet.
